Catherine Allen >> 

Catherine is a lampwork bead maker and silversmith. She creates creates glass beads and combines them with hand forged sterling silver to make unique pieces of jewellery. The beads are wound from melted glass in an intense flame, then embellished by adding fine silver to the surface or by etching them in acid for a matt fossilised feel. 
 
Catherine teaches lampwork bead making from her studio on the Suffolk border at Leavenheath.
